Curbside Pickup Only Effective 12/21/20


Updated 12/22/20

The Library will be closed 12/23 and will reopen for Curbside Pickup only starting Monday 12/28/2020 at 2pm.  

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Dear Reader,

Effective December 21st, 2020 the Canton Public Library will be returning to a Curbside Pickup model of service. 

This decision was made jointly by the Emergency Executive Committee of the Board of Library Trustees and the Canton Select Board at their meeting on December 7th, 2020 in response to the rising numbers of COVID-19 in town. The Curbside Pickup model will remain in effect until such time as the positivity rate reflects a sustained downward trend as it did during the months of June, July and August.

Like you, we have been monitoring the rates of COVID-19 infections in Canton and statewide. We have been concerned to see those numbers increase significantly since the Thanksgiving holiday. By taking this step, we hope to do our part to protect the health of both library patrons and staff.

While we are saddened that we are temporarily unable to offer in person library services, we will continue to provide you with a wide variety of virtual services as well as the ability to pickup books and materials for all ages through our Curbside Pickup Program, which has expanded to run 6 days per week. 

We hope that you will continue to join us for virtual Storytimes on Facebook M-F at 10:30 A.M and you can check our events calendar for book discussions, author events, crafting opportunities, and a variety of other virtual programs for all ages.

While it is difficult to be taking this step backwards, we remain hopeful that the New Year and the COVID-19 vaccine will allow us to begin to normalize operations in the months ahead. Meanwhile we wish you and your family a happy and safe holiday season and a healthy start to 2021.
